Premiere: Hannah Blackburn shares a personal moment with Did You Always Know
The vulnerable new single arrives ahead of a Melbourne single launch in early June.
If you're yet to be acquainted, Hannah Blackburn is a Melbourne-based musician specialising in a really open and intimate style of folk-pop, bringing together subtle guitar melodies with honesty and openness we could really see more of on a songwriting level. It was something front and centre with her debut single With Rest and something that she's been honing in on as she works on new material; finding time to write amongst support slots for Angie McMahon, Carla Geneve and more. It's something that's also front and centre with her second single Did You Always Know, a subtle return that upon premiering on Pilerats today, welcomes her first piece of new music in two years.
Did You Always Know is sparse and delicate, with intricately-placed percussion hits and soft guitar melodies uniting underneath Blackburn's rich, but pulled-back vocal; highlighted with this vulnerability that continues to shine with her second release. "Did You Always Know was written in the wake of a breakup," she says on the single, which arrives ahead of a Melbourne launch show on June 9th - more info HERE. "It harnesses the immediate feelings of nostalgia and captures the inevitable denial which allows us heartbroken suckers to throw reality out the window and forget all the bad. As the song goes on, it structurally steps through the acceptance process, always returning to question 'Did You Always Know?'." Dive into the single below, and be sure to keep an eye on Hannah Blackburn as she blossoms into an artist to watch throughout 2019.
